COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brown Ale
A traditional English-style brown ale, but with more body. Its deep brown color comes from a combination of Chocolate and Black malts. Tall, dark and smooth – the perfect cure for the domestic beer blahs.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, dark brown; huge head and lots of lacing. Roasted malts, nuts, some caramel and some chocolate. Taste is also sweet, smokey some chocolate there too. Nice roasty bitter finish. OK beer.

Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma lends some sweet caramel notes and mild fruits. Taste is moderately sweet. Medium carbonation and low to medium body. Not bad, but mostly not good.

12 oz bottle This is the first of my 12 beers per month as a gift from AOPD. The ale poured a clear reddish brown color with a light tan head and lacing. Nutty and bready malts greet you. The taste is more complex with some chocolate and toasted malts. The ale has a light body and average carbonation. A nice brown ale with a clean dry finish to the last swallow.

Bottle@ trailer. Clear dark brown color with fleeting tan foam. Dark bread, nutty, sour dough aromas. Medium body. Lightly sweet caramel flavors with roasted nuts, dark bread___nicely bitter finish----not bad.

This had a huge, unmanageable foamy head that took forever to shrink. Deep copper color with a light grainy nose. Very carbonated on the tongue. Taste of wet grains, old toast and a bit of a tartness that I found off putting. Not much to recommend this beer.

Bottled. Dark brown mahogany pour. Malts and bit of caramel bread. Unspectacular in general.

RJ Rockers Brown Eyed Squirrel nut brown ale has a thick, beige head, a murky, standard brown appearance, a plethora of tan yeast chunks swirling about, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of brown bread crust, nut shell, and sweetness, but a big inhalation is required to pick up any scent. Taste is of the same elements, with low-level bitterness and a touch of sourness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and RJ Rockers Brown Eyed Squirrel finishes fairly crisp and quite easy drinking. RJT

Beer of month club offering. Pours a light brown without much of a head. Muted nose - some malt. Taste is of malt, with some nutty sweetness. A decent brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle, A brown body with a tan head that had nice retention. Initial aroma had a strong malt presence. Which seemed to me to be of sweet toasted bread and a blend of nuts. Cereal notes were present too. While the flavor was enjoyable it was mostly a one note malt flavor. A nice mouth feel and a nice smooth finish.
Earlier Rating: 3/19/2012 Total Score: 2.9
A medium brown body with a brown head, Decent retention and no lace. Kind of watery body. Aroma had good caramel malt notes and a nice nutty quality. Flavor was very mild, but had a nice nutty flavor and the caramel malts were nice. Had a slight roasted note that seemed bitter at times,/ Finish was light and smooth. A little watery.
